I don't see the relation to #240180? fftw3 compiles ok it seems, it fails
one of its tests. Usually when fortran code fails, we switch to f2c for
m68k, but the last working version on m68k was also built with g77-3.3
(3.3.3-0pre0). The failing ones where both built with 3.3.3-6, but they
failed the test at different places? Maybe there is a regression, maybe it
is fixed with 3.3.4-7 which is now available. I started a build, but I have
no idea how to fix it, if it fails the tests again (other than building with
f2c, or 2.95). Any suggestions?
